Haematological Lipid Profile of Working Dog Fed Metabolic Modifiers

Abstract: The availability for work from the energy stored as lipid depot in producing animals can be increased by using metabolic modifiers such as Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) and Chromium (Cr), but little published information exists on combination of both, when fed to working dogs. Nine adult Siberian Husky dogs (1 to 3 years old and 30 kg of average weight) were used to assess the effect CLA (0.15%, dry matter basis) and CLA plus Cr (100 ppm) added to the feed and its impact on haematological lipid profile. Blood glucose was unchaged by the treatments (p>0.05), however, the lipid status of the Siberian dogs was altered by the metabolic modifiers. The different lipid components of the blood were reduced (p< 0.05) by the use of the CLA and further decline (p< 0.05) with the combination of CLA and Cr. In conclusion, the CLA reduces the haematological lipid status and some synergical effects were observed with Cr, which might increase the available energy for physical work of the Siberian dog.
